Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

CHIL­DREN at Hollinhey Pri­mary School in Sut­ton can put their healthy eat­ing skills into prac­tice thanks to the ar­rival of a new food tech­nol­ogy lab.

Sarah Clough, head­teacher at the Bell Av­enue school, said the chil­dren cel­e­brated the open­ing of the food tech­nol­ogy room with a se­ries of health re­lated ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing a whole school dance.

She said: “At the end of the spring term, Hollinhey Pri­mary School held a Healthy Body, Healthy Mind Day as part of their PSHE cur­ricu­lum.

“The chil­dren took part in a va­ri­ety of health re­lated ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing a whole school group dance, run­ning a mile and pro­duc­ing healthy snacks.

“This gave the school the perfect op­por­tu­nity to of­fi­cially open their food tech­nol­ogy room.

“The cook­ing fa­cil­i­ties have been kindly funded by Friends of Hollinhey and help the school to en­sure that all the chil­dren have the op­por­tu­nity to fully par­tic­i­pate in all as­pects of the De­sign Tech­nol­ogy cur­ricu­lum.

“The chil­dren re­ally loved show­ing off their cook­ing skills.”
